Global Copper, Nickel, Lead, and Zinc Mining Market Briefing 2017 – Research and Markets

The “Copper,
Nickel, Lead, and Zinc Mining Market Global Briefing 2017”
report has been added to Research and Markets’ offering.

The copper, nickel, lead and zinc mining industries include companies
developing mine sites, mining and converting ores into copper, nickel,
lead or zinc content. Mining is either done through underground and
surface mining techniques. Underground mining are used to reach deeper
deposits which requires digging tunnels or shafts to reach buried ore
deposits. Surface mining is used for less valuable deposits and is done
by removing surface vegetation or layers of bedrock to reach ore
deposits. 80% of zinc mining is extracted through underground mining
whereas 90% of copper mining is done in open pits.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the copper, nickel, lead, and
zinc mining market in 2016, accounting for around 52% of the market.
This can be partially attributed to copper and lead demand by the
electrical and electronic industry for manufacturing. North America was
the second largest region accounting for around 12% of the market. South
America was the third largest region accounting for around 12% of the

The implementation of IoT in mining industry is enhancing decision
making capabilities and reduces production costs. IoT enables the
sensors to pick up real time data, analyze the data, facilitate
equipment communication, identifies faulty equipment and derive insights
from the data generated. With fully integrated network, the mining
equipment is monitored on real time basis and a report is projected on
when the repairs or maintenance is required. In the near future, IoT is
expected to become the standard in mining industry. According to the
report published by Deloitte, globally, 69% of the mining companies are
looking at remote monitoring and 29% at unmanned drones to improve their
operations monitoring and productivity.
